Dog talk with Uncle Matty: Working with fear

Fearful dogs are tricky. They are to dog trainers what antique glass heirlooms are to UPS delivery people: special care and handling required.

To Free or Not To Free? The line between good business practice and generosity gets blurred with the moon’s crossing from ambitious Capricorn into philanthropic Aquarius.

Bombardier a flying firefighter

Although it would be quite a treat to see the U.S. Forest Service’s giant CL 415 “Super Scooper” flying through the skies over Placerville, the sight would be a mixed blessing — it would mean there’s a wildfire nearby.

But it would also mean that the chances of containing the blaze quickly would be greatly increased, as the CL 415 Bombardier is a champion warrior assigned to the front lines of battle.

The USFS Tuesday proudly showed off its latest weapon in its firefighting arsenal, a huge CL 415 Aeroflite 260 Bombardier that will be stationed at the Lake Tahoe Airport for the next seven months as fire season hits critical mass. The aircraft, affectionately known as the Super Scooper, is the only such plane currently flying in the United States — and Tahoe forestry officials are thrilled to have it here for the season.

Horoscopes, Sunday, July 26, 2015

Uranus Turns Retrograde The human tendency is to believe the thing that resonates with one’s instincts and disbelieve what doesn’t, truth be damned.

CASA: A chance to make a difference
